Jabba the Cat

In this corner, weighing in at a dainty and delicate 40 pounds, is the World’s Fattest Cat

…and cat lovers, he’s available:

Living up to his cartoon namesake’s notoriously gargantuan appetite, obese Garfield was brought into North Shore Animal League of America in Long Island, New York, after his owner passed away.

Tipping the scales at 40lb, staff have since put him on a low calorie diet, containing no dry food in the hope Garfield can lose around 2lbs a month.

His name is Garfield.  But I’d call him Jabba.

    Me and the barn cat are both dieting..his stomach in about two months no longer graces the ground ..neither does mine, but then it never quite did……

      Don’t diet, just count: Calories in/Calories out — simple equation, it works every time, whether you’re trying to lose or gain. (I drink a coke/beer a day to maintain my current weight.)
      Anyway, you look great… when I was writing the post about Linda Gibbons I couldn’t help thinking that you’re the same age as her and look about 20 yrs younger :shock:

    At least he’s not running around in a tank top and short shorts. Those fur coats cover up a multitude of sins – almost.

    What a horrible thing to do to an animal. The cat looks miserable.

      Animals know when they’re being mocked.
      That might sound like flaky anthropomorphizing, and usually I’m not given to that kind of thing, but 40 years of living with cats and dogs has proven it to me. They don’t like when you watch them going to the bathroom or having sex, and they don’t like being laughed at.
